the lily’s bloom
the grazing doe
the secret smile
For each seed of tenderness we are grateful;
for each planting of joy we give you thanks.
the hazy dawn
the rolling thunder
the friendly silence
For each seed of wonder we sing gratitude;
for each planting of patience we give praise.
the quiet stream
the held hand
the deep breath
For each seed of love we lift up your name;
for each planting of faith we offer our joy.
Let each seed be a blessing,
a sign, a parable,
of your reign.
The Rev. Rachel G. Hackenberg‘s book with co-author Martha Spong, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith), searches for faith through life’s trials. Rachel has also written Writing to God, a popular Lenten devotional, and other books.
